**ABE EDIT** - with a 1.6 TC.
1.6 tc with those tires and a tdi is a miss match. You have to be taching out @ a relatively low speed.

MPH. Around 3200 rpm or so.

I don't mean to derail this thread, but what is the ideal cruising RPM's for a 200?

I installed 3.54 diff's in my 200TDI series IIA conversion and after installing a tach and running the serial number on my T-Case realize I have a 1.6:1 LT230.

I'm about 3,000 - 3150 @ 65…….I set my baseline by ear, but need to adjust my tach based on results from a laser to confirm idle RPM's.

Anyway, I'm close enough.

What does the 200 like to run at? How high is too high?

I'm not sure you can run too high, in that it won't hurt anything. The lower you can get it and still maintain speed, the better the economy will get. I'm around 2400 at 65 mph. IMO, power is pretty flat from 2200 to 3400, so you can gear up quite a ways before 5th is too high.

Interesting, I think long term the 1.4:1 is what I need but it's nice to hear I'm not going to blow it up running @ 3200 RPM's for two or three hours.

I will add to the thread and say that my 200 has a pile of power left @ 65MPH and I am only limited by gearing. I have plenty of power up hills, can pass other cars with ease and once I figure out my gearing could easily see my truck running 80+ MPH.

You have to worry more about 1st gear. It is a bit sketchy with a 1.2 unless you have the military box. 1.4 is nice and safe. If you have the proper 200tdi LT77 or an R380 with the 0.77 5th it is a good gearing range.

Yes it will run......now!

Brand new row 110.
Less than 400 miles on total ground up restoration. Not sure of the box ratios.
60 mph was all she would do. Period.
On a flat interstate between Orlando and Titusville even going over an overpass would slow it down to 45-50. Yuk!!
Finally pulled over to investigate. Low and behold the banjo bolt on the back of the injector pump was loose. I mean seriously loose. Like three good turns with your fingers before even thinking about a wrench to snug it down.
Now it runs like a raped ape!
It now will maintain 80 all the way from Titusville to Orlando and not even slow down over the overpasses. Yay!!
Moral of the story....check for air leaks in the fuel system!!

We use the small green diesel Mr. Gasket 12V fuel pumps available at any auto supply.
This configuration also gives you a self bleeding fuel system.
Couple questions

1. Why keep the lift pump in place? Why not just go electric pump to fuel filter?

2. "Return line joins with the injector spill over and goes straight back to the tank." This is how it is setup from the factory no?

Yes. But a lot of people (most on here) have trucks that were converted and not every conversion was done completely correctly.....

Cool just making sure.

I just ordered new lift pump, sedimenter, and inline pump/relay harness. Want to make sure I am not missing anything along the way. Was thinking about adding an inline FP gauge too between LP and filter.
